Currently, as a student at one of the top architecture schools, I can observe how the most successful students utilize AI. It's clear to see how it improves their workflow and design progress, even as early as 2022.

Already, AI can handle most of the work for an architect. I believe that the next 20 years will further popularize AI within the profession, reducing the amount of work done manually.

LOL it's already dead. Almost no one hires architects now, there are so many tools that already do their job. Wake up, it's game over for this one. The site is way behind the times.

Creativity from architects mind couldn't be replaced by AI, But some typical architecture room plans, could be systematized by machine learning on cad programs, like actual libraries of equipment, it could be library of rooms, baths, etc.

Depends on the kind of architecture, the way that the industry itself thinks about what architecture means (an engineering/optimization problem versus art, desire to rapidly customize vs work on the process with other humans) and what clients demand.

computerisation will help and not hinder the architectural profession. Automisation is something that has no place

I think it would be quite hard for robots to take clients ideas for architecture and turn it into a floorplan since there are billions of ways to build a house.
